I took this from my back yard, it's a zoomed-in view of the creek looking east at sunset. I'm always amazed at the spectacular displays the eastern sky puts on at a time of the day when the western sky is usually receiving the most attention.
Speaking of being amazed at spectacular displays, it's time to talk about determining the winner of my little contest.
I thank all of you who sent in entries for the story contest. Each and every one was wonderful and I personally think they are all winners.
However, we need to determine one winner. Below are the 9 entries. Please review them and select your top choice and a runner-up, and send me an e-mail at ChesapeakeBayWoman@gmail.com by Monday at 7:00 p.m. (Those of you who have my other e-mail address may send it there if you prefer.) You may only vote once.
I will announce the winner some time early next week. (See how I avoid specifics with the "some time next week"? This is intentional because it gives me a buffer in case I have a computer crash, or we have a natural disaster, or I am distracted and forget to count the votes, for example.)
